MEDIA REVIEWS
Schuerkens draws from a truly global array of systems writers writing in a variety of languages....there are emphases on complexity, on multiplicity of outcomes, on consequential interactions between local cultures and international structures, and on persistent and enduring global pathologies that do not disappear. All of this is refreshing. -- Samuel Cohn
The audience for this book may include academics, higher education practitioners, individuals concerned with global civil society, and political activists. I recommend this book as a resource, maybe a starting point for those interested in global studies, globalization, and social movements. -- Ligia E Toutant
